We take the lift up to the Grödner Joch. The Dantercerpies run brings us down to Wolkenstein in the Val Gardena. In the center of Wolkenstein we enter the cablecar up to the Campinoi. On top starts the worldcup run Saslong which is leading till Christina. The winner took 1:56,70 = 106 km/h (Michael Walchhofer [AUT], 2007) for it!
The first short part of this run, which is part of the run to Wolkenstein also, is often icy, wide and, depending of the daytime, it's heavy traffic here. Be attention of Kamikazes!
If you are not so trained skier, after the first third of the slope, you can take the red, parallel slope to Christina as variant.
At the end the waiting skibus... No, that was the booring past. Now there is a brandnew tube, accurate the "Val Gardena Ronda Express", which take us to the gondola terminal Col Raiser!
Arrived on top of the Col Raiser, there is a good self-service restaurant for a break. Anyway, we take the ski catwalk on the left till to the beginning of the long (1.5 km) chairlift up to the Seceda. On top we have to ride very close at the right side of the slope where we pass the mountain station of the Seceda cable way. Now along the following ridge. On the end we come to the next short catwalk. From now the slopes leads about 6 km to Ullrich downwards. In the middle we pass the second section of the cable car station. Don't stop here!
The slope ends at the cable car station up to the Seceda directly. Back on the Seceda now we take the super wide run till short of the chair lift station. Here we take the right going slope back to the valley Terminal Col Raiser where we enter our tube to Cristina. In two sections, first with the cable car and then with the chairlift we reach the Campinoi. Now we can choose the red or black slope to Wolkenstein.
In Wolkenstein we have to unbuckle our ski and walk between the houses to the other side of the street to the connection lift Costa Bello. It brings us a little bit up that we are able to use the short slope to the Dantercerpies cable car. Once on top we have a relaxed downhill to Colfosco and we can think about of an "Einkehrschwung"** at Mesoles*
*Short of Colfosco, close on the left side at the slope.
**Dear reader, Einkehrschwung (pronunciation below) means: while skiing suddenly you see a hut and you think: Hey! Stop! Let's have a drink! :-))
